Netflix 'Good On Paper' Full Cast List: Meet Iliza Shlesinger and other stars
Netflix's 'Good On Paper' is about a stand-up comic Andrea Singer who always put her career first, until she stumbles upon the perfect guy
Anyone who has looked for love can immediately tell you that they have come across candidates for romance who seem perfectly good on paper, but somehow all that perfection doesn't translate into love. That's the case in 'Good On Paper' on Netflix which centers around stand-up comedian Andrea Singer (Iliza Shlesinger) who has always put her career ahead of love.
So when she finally stumbles on a seemingly perfect guy, she is keen to let her guard down. Her best friend Margot (Margaret Cho), however, is convinced that he isn't all he seems. This leads to a wild goose chase to find out what lurks beneath Dennis' (Ryan Hansen) perfect exterior. If you enjoy romantic comedies with a little bit of edge, you may also enjoy 'Master of None', 'Always Be My Maybe' and 'The Lovebirds' on Netflix.
